Air is directed into the inner shell and past the head in channels in the Hi-EPS, thus ensuring optimal ventilation. The back and temple areas are lower cut to ensure optimal safety in rough terrain. The edges of the helmet are finished with Edge Protect. A further feature is the high-quality Run System Ergo Pro, which is combined with the Custom Fit System for height adjustment – an additional bonus in respect of comfort and safety.

RUN SYSTEM ERGO PRO
The top model of the new Alpina Adaptation Systems for the rear head has left and right of the central newly designed two large "headrests". Both, the wing-shaped cushion as well as the adjusting wheel itself, are made of a two component mix containing synthetic material and rubber. Since 2014, the Run System Ergo Pro is available in matching colors to the helmet.
All ALPINA helmets are equipped with ERGOMATIC strap buckles. The anti-twist, automatic multi-step adjustment system is easy to operate using just one hand and prevented from opening in case of a crash.
For protection against insect bites, the front holes of some models are lined with a net.
Inmold helmets are produced by foaming the inner shell underneath the outer shell under high pressure and heat. Thanks to the complete bonding between the upper and lower shells INMOLD helmets are extremely sturdy and very light. In addition, they offer clearly more safety than spot-bonded helmets.
The inner shell of all INMOLD helmets is made of HI-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). It consists of a multitude of microscopic air pockets that absorb the forces occurring in an impact. In addition, HI-EPS absorbs neither water nor sweat.
That's the name for the outer shell of all ALPINA helmets featuring INMOLD manufacturing technology. This thin and light-weight material is extremely break- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.
The detachable shield protects against dirt splash as well as direct sunlight.
